Product Article by Steve Bamford on Mar 13 2017



This detail set from QuickBoost features a pair of resin float rudders for the Arado Ar 196 from Revell.  

The Arado Ar 196 was a shipboard reconnaissance low-wing monoplane with a crew of 2 that became the standard aircraft of the Kriegsmarine (German navy) throughout World War II.  These had 2 cannons and 2 machine guns firing forward operated by the pilot plus 2 machine guns firing rearward operated by the rear crew member.  This float plane also had the ability to carry two 50 kg bombs.

On a float plane the rudders on the rear of the floats are a critical and noticeable detail.  This set gives you the ability to add a high level of detail to this prominent area on your Arado Ar 196. 

You can purchase these and other fine resin detail items directly from QuickBoost
